Individual and Family Substance Abuse Consulting
More often than not, drug addictions start with experimental use of a drug in social situations. And for some people, drug use becomes more frequent. As time passes, a person may feel the need to use more of a drug to get their desired high, and soon a person may need the drug to simply feel “good.”
When we see this happen to a loved one, we do everything we can to help. But sometimes, our unconditional love simply isn’t enough.
Signs and symptoms of recent use include:
- Feeling of exhilaration and excess confidence
- Increased alertness
- Increased energy and restlessness
- Behavior changes or aggression
- Rapid or rambling speech
- Dilated pupils
- Delusions and hallucinations
- Irritability or changes in mood
- Anger and rage
If your loved one comes to mind with any of the above symptoms and behaviors, it may be time to consider addiction coaching.
As an addiction coach, I will address the symptoms of your loved one’s addiction and the related areas of impaired functioning, and together we’ll structure the time and content of their ongoing recovery.
I believe that there are many paths to successful recovery that will work with the goals and desires of your loved one, and ensure they can make the life changes they want to make. If you’re seeking to help your loved one get the help they need, I will meet with the family members and discuss different ways to approach the individual. Contact me today for a free consultation.
